Godot Is A Woman

In 1953 a man wrote a play about waiting.
In 1988 he sued five women for trying to perform it.
In 2001 Madonna released What It Feels Like for a Girl.
It’s 2023 and we’re still waiting.

Since Samuel Beckett wrote Waiting for Godot, he and his estate have notoriously challenged – often legally – non-male companies that wish to perform it. A whip-smart interrogation of gender, authorial copyright and the cultural significance of Madonna’s 1989 album Like a Prayer, Silent Faces return with their trademark style of playful, political, physical theatre.

Featured in The Guardian’s 20 theatre, comedy and dance shows you shouldn’t miss at Edinburgh fringe 2022.
As heard on The Guilty Feminist podcast and Radio 4’s Roleplay
